First night away from Nathan

Eric led a college retreat this past weekend in Panama City and I went for 1 day and a half. Eric's parents stayed with him and said he was "perfect"- but you know that a grandparents eyes are a little tainted.
I came back late Sat. and on Sunday, after a rough day at the church nursery for Nathan, i went to get him up after a nap. Clumsily, i fell down our stairs with Nathan in one arm and his drink in another. He and the baby were fine, but after going to the doctor today, i found out that I just bruised my foot. I haven't been able to put a lot of weight( which i have a lot of these days) on it- but feel it healing. I have gotten out of some chores around the house and I have a valid excuse for not excersizing!

Summer fun

So, Nathan bummed this pool float off of some other toddler at the beach and had a hard time letting go. As you can tell he made the car sound the whole time he was riding in it. I used to think his shirts stayed wet from teething- but now it is just because he makes the car sound everytime he sees anything with wheels.

Summertime in Ga. brings bugs! I feel like the negligent mother because if you look closely right now at Nathan you will see around 10 mosquito bites and 2 spider bites! It is hard to not let him play outside- b/c of course it is his favorite place to be. And yes, he has bug spray on. Any suggestions from you seasoned parents?

My child must have the most sensitive skin of all!

The summer is flying by!

So, i haven't done a very good job in keeping up with this blog. The summer has been fun- and filled with a lot of transition. Overall, we have all adjusted. Nathan still screams anytime we leave him with anyone... i am praying it will eventually get better. He and I both cry every Sunday morning when i drop him off for nursery. He is pitiful- starts shaking and lip quivering as soon as we walk into the church.
On a happy note- it is so fun to watch him develop physically- trying to run everywhere. Verbally- he tries most words. He loves to sing, spot out construction trucks, cranes and tractors, play with balls and wants to read or look at anything with Elmo. Why is it that kids like Elmo so much?
Eric is enjoying the challenge of church ministry and is trying to not solve the world's problems in the second month of his job. He and I end up staying up late at night talking through ministry stuff and the possibilities of what God can do. It is a lot of fun.
As for me- i am as big as a house. The maternity clothes that i thought i would never be big enough to fit into are fitting me! I will have a good fall challenge to work off the weight. We have 7 weeks left before this baby is due... still working on a name.
